Improbable Research After Dark (Cambridge)

Join a big bunch of us late Saturday night for our temptation-filled event at the Cambridge Science Festival:

Improbable Research After Dark. SATURDAY NIGHT, May 7, 11:00 pm. Central Square Theater, Cambridge, MA.

TICKETS are on sale at the Central Square Theater and online. This will be a benefit for the Catalyst Collaborative@MIT Science Theater Project and Improbable Research.

Dramatic, two-minute-long readings from studies and patents that have won Ig Nobel Prizes, performed by some of the Boston area’s leading scientists, actors, and journalists. These are studies that make people laugh, then think. WARNING: Do not come to this event if you are easily offended by anything. Studies include The Effect of Coca-Cola as a Spermicide; The Collapse of Toilets in Glasgow; The First Case of Homosexual Necrophilia in the Mallard Duck; and many more. Featuring:

BONUS: Make a full science/theatre night of it! Earlier that evening, at 8:00 pm on the same stage, see a magnificent new production of the play Breaking the Code, about Alan Turing.

This is similar to the Improbable After Dark shows we did in March in London and in April at the Edinburgh Science Festival, but with different performers (and a higher percentage of American accents).
